    It was just a feeling in me waters.... I was finally with the guy I thought I'd spend the rest of my life with. We were so content, happy and just ready. Strangely enough after years of trying and after one succesful IVF journey, we broke up and I'm parenting solo and he has another baby with someone else.

    It doesn't matter anymore because my little man is the most loved child on the planet none-the-less ) nothing could top that so I know one is enough for me.

    I don't believe in 'planning' anymore. I just do what I want to do and let the rest come.

    I knew it was the right time when I just. could. not. stop. thinking about babies 24/7. It was confirmed for me I guess when we fell pregnant and again when I birthed our little girl. Kids just fit into your life. It's awesome.

    We just knew. We wanted to start at the beginning of this year but I'm glad we waited until now, we are much better off financially.

    However - I've wanted a baby for as long as I can remember, and DP really got clucky when our nephew was born in August last year.

    We always knew that we wanted children, and we'd always thought that we'd start trying sometime in 2011. We wanted to have a few years of our marriage as just us, we wanted to travel, and I wanted to be at a certain point in my career. We married at the end of 2008 and bought our house at the same time, we had a big European adventure in 2010 and we weren't sure about when exactly we would start TTC. In September 2010 my grandfather passed away and it made me realise how badly I wanted to add to our little family. But we felt that we should wait a few months to see if we were really ready or if it was just a reaction. Then in November my sister announced her pregnancy. I was so happy for her but I was heartbroken that it wasn't me. That's when I knew for sure. I went off the pill in December 2010 and we got our BFP in March 2011... resulting in our gorgeous little man!

    I'm finding it just as difficult to decide when we'll be ready to TTC #2. I'd like 2 years between babies but I'm still not sure... will it be too crazy? It's doing my head in!

    I'm not a particularly maternal person but we knew we wanted kids. We are both at the older end of the scale (I'm 34, DH is 41). We wanted to go to Europe (did that in 2010) and build our dream home (finished in June this year) before we had kids, so it was really an academic decision. We started ttc when our house build started and the race was on to move in before DS arrived in August.

    Right up until I went into labour I was terrified that I wasn't ready to be a mum, worried about losing my lifestyle etc, but now that he's here I'm amazed at how great it is and I can't wait to have another one! It has certainly changed things but life is so much richer

    This was me as well - I was so worried about the change in our lifestyle, but everything is worth it. I wouldn't change having my DS for anything.

    All I ever wanted was to be a mum, preferably a young mum. I too wanted to be done by the time I was 30! DH didn't want kids past 35. We pretty much started trying after we got married. We already owned a house, I'd scaled my work back to part time so we knew we could afford to live on a smaller wage. It wasn't the 'perfect' time as DH was having some work issues but we knew that if we waited for the perfect moment we'd be waiting forever. We got married in Dec 2010 when I was 26 and DH was 31, and I was pregnant by Oct 2011

    When I started turning down potential partners in regards to whether they were "family ready" or not, I knew I was ready to have children. When I met my husband we both could tell from the start we were done with being kids, and wanted to start a family. We both wanted to be married, in secure jobs, and own our house before we began though, so that's what we did! Got secure jobs, Bought a house, got married, then had our first, then our second, now our third on the way
